Stringing at ultra fine layer height

Recommended Posts

Could you show a photo?  It must be a strangely shaped vase to get stringing.  In general I get zero stringing.  Zero.  I print slow and cool.  On UM3 usually 30 or 40mm/sec on outer layer.

I uploaded a photo - it was actually a bit worse as I had scraped some of the stringing off earlier.

Ooh yes yeugh. Try any or all of  all print speeds set to 30mm/s (1st layer 20mm/s)   Fan 100%  extruder temp; with layer height of .300 the probably no higher than 200 - cooler if layers are thinner; assuming a .4 nozzle then line width .4 and wall size a multiple of .4        I assume you are not using spiralise.

Not using spiralize.  I would like to do it at .06mm and have it work.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
